DeLonghi Oil-Filled Space Heater

A familiar model for heating small spaces

Likely one of the most recognizable space heaters is this oil-filled model from DeLonghi. The onboard oil system is permanently sealed, so you don't need to perform any maintenance. You also won’t have to worry about overheating, because this unit has a protection mechanism that will turn it off automatically if it gets too hot. Cord storage on the side of the heater makes it easier to relocate to another room. 

Staying warm

When you’re cold and uncomfortable it’s hard to relax or be productive. To keep you warm, we think the Lasko Ceramic Space Heater is the best option for most people. The remote is really useful so you can stay comfy on the couch while turning the heat up or down, or even setting a timer. By using the tall form factor, Lasko made it easy to find floor space to position your heater without compromising on the amount of heat it can generate.

If you’re traveling a lot, or you’re just tight on space, consider the Lasko MyHeat Personal Ceramic Heater. This tiny machine can really output a lot of warm air, and the button is so conveniently placed on the front for easy access. It can fit among your paper piles on your desk, or tuck neatly into your suitcase or carryon.
